Python access to the CityIQ api.

Project description

This module and command line tool provides access to the CityIQ API, with particular focus on getting metadata and parking events. The interface includes a basic access object for getting metadata and events, a scraper object for mass downloading events, and a command line tool for downloading and processing events.


Use pip:

pip install cityiq


The program requires a configuration file that hold credentials and urls. You can generate a default configuration with

ciq_config  -w

The generated file is configured for the San Diego system. To you this system , you will just need to add your client id and secret.

The code will look for this file in several places in this order:

  • The path specified by the CITYIQ_CONFIG env var
  • .city-iq.yaml in the current dir
  • city-iq.yaml in the current dir
  • .city-iq.yaml in the user’s home dir


After generating a config file you can run the ciq_events program to get event records. See the documentation for Scraping for more information.

The Documentation has more details, but not much more.
